Asked On September 30, 2004 06:56 PM UTC

I have an MDI application which uses the DockingManager and MainFrameBarManager/ChildFrameBarManager. Some of my BarItems have shortcut keys defined, e.g. CTRL-N. However, CTRL-N does not always work. One common scenario is that an undocked (floating) panel has the focus. This behaviour is easy to reproduce in the MDI sample application. However, it is not a problem in the Visual Studio IDE. Does anyone know of a good approach to solving this problem? Thanks in advance. Nik

Hi Nik, I was able to observe that this behavior was inconsistent with the behavior of VS.NET docking. The problem seems to be that the floating form retains the focus where as the VS.NET floating forms lose focus when shortcut keys are pressed. We will change the behavior so that the shortcut keys are processed even when the floating panels have focus. I will post more information when the fix is available. Thank you for your co-operation. Best regards, Stephen. >I have an MDI application which uses the DockingManager and MainFrameBarManager/ChildFrameBarManager. Some of my BarItems have shortcut keys defined, e.g. CTRL-N.

Hi Scot, I am afraid, this issue has not been addressed as yet. Please refer to the Feature Request#278 XPMenus and Microsoft Menus shortcuts don''t work when a floating control has focus link to track the status of this issue. I have once again notified the development team about it and we will try our very best to address the same at the earliest. We appreciate your patience and cooperation. Thanks, Vijay

Even I am facing the above mentioned problem. I have a Docked treeViewAdv in AutoHide Mode, when the control has focus it does not process any other kayboard menu shortcuts. Regards, Osden

Hi Osden, Also, please make sure to set the ForwardMenuShortcuts property on DockingManager to true. This is required to enable the new feature. Regards, Gregory Austin Syncfusion Inc.
